[xep-support] floats

I'm confused over the area from which a float takes space in the
inline progression dimension.

In the example, the side float *should* AFAIK, take space from the
second list item.
It seems to take it from the third one.

Anyone explain why please?

TIA DaveP

    <fo:block>List item three content.  The float should not take content
      from this third area. Longer text lengths should cause this text to wrap
      around the float.</fo:block>
